Well another disappointing loss hangs over Bengals fans. Enduring a 10-day wait after the Miami Dolphins debacle the Bengals had a chance to right the ship and jump out to a big lead in the AFC North. Well as good as the month of October was November is proving to be downright awful.
But let’s look at the bright side: The Bengals still hold a lead in the AFC North and with a win against Cleveland Browns, they would still have comfortable lead going into the bye. They also have a favorable schedule compared to the Browns and Baltimore Ravens, so there is still a lot of optimism this team will ultimately win the AFC North.
There were some bright spots on Sunday and most were on defense with Mike Zimmer’s boys seamlessly adapting to the loss of Geno Atkins.
